Hi, can anyone help me with where to go or who to see if I suspect sensory processing issues in my three year old? OT? Physio? GP first? Do I need referrals to see someone?
He's always been "funny" with different textures, loud noises, bright lights, anything touching his skin, but the older he gets, he gets worse. I just need to work out whether he's still in the realm for "normal" behavior, or if, as I suspect, there's actually something sensory going on.
But I don't really know where to start...

I would start with your gp. Unless you are already seeing a pead. It is a long road but it will help answer all the questions. We are in the process to. But it is different in NZ than auzzy.

An OT will be able to help with SPD - and tell you a load about it - its a good starting point. But you might need to see your GP for a referral to a paed - better to get that rolling now as it can take months to get in to see anyone.
My kids are on the spectrum and have SPD too - ones is a seeker and one is an avoider.
Our OT was a great help in reducing a lot of the sensitives with some alternative therapies.
